After Life on Wheels
This morning at 11:30 I was across the highway at the Palouse Mall using the laundromat to wash & dry clothes. I also visited Starbucks there for my mocha as the ladies who have been here all week are back downtown at the Farmer's Market today. I will go to Walmart & Winco Foods again later today on a shopping trip & may have dinner at the Chinese buffet in the mall. I don't cook much.
This LoW was a lot different for me in many ways. It was the first one in Moscow without Annie being with me, after we had been here together for the last four years. I sure missed her. Secondly I am parked on the opposite side of A lot from where we usually have been for the last three years. I arrived early and worked on the parking crew. That was fun but very tiring. I didn't feel back to normal until Wed. But I plan to do it again next year. There are 18 class periods with 8 to 12 classes offered in each period, over four & a half days. I attended 7 periods, six classes (one, Digital Photography, was a double period one.) That is about the same number of classes I attended last year. I now know more people than I did before & I'll look forward to seeing them again at various places on the road. That is part of the charm of the RV life style. I have a few more photos that I'll try to get up when I get to Spokane. I am hoping for a broadband connection there.
I guess life goes on, whether we want it to or not. Somehow the future just looks pretty bleak.
Sounds like we are both in a slump right now....hang in there, the roller coaster ride continues and we'll be on an roll again soon, hooting & hollaring on the way. ;)
Love and ((((hugs))))
Give huggy a big squeeze for me.
Until then I keep you and Annie both in my prayers, and am sending you all the hugs I can muster. If you ever want to chat about it Dick, just let me know as I'd love to be a shoulder. God bless.
Our character is formed by those who touch us in our lives, and Annie's touch has helped to create a loving and caring man, Dick. Your love for her is obvious, and I'm guessing it would be her wish for you to enjoy each day to its fullest...
You know , it has been a short while since your precious annie has passed , your heart is with her and you miss her terribly I am sure, it must be hard after all these years , what would annie want , she wouldnt want you to feel like this I am sure .You retracing your steps with Annie must make you very melancoly. You had such a zeal for life together ,but part of that was beacuse of you.
You have to grieve , we all do at some point ,but realise you shall meet again but for now life is precious,each day with your family esp your Grandchild , must make you feel love ,you have alot going for you just from what we see here on your blog , hang in there you will ok . sending you a cyber hug and hope your feeling better soon
KISSes for HUGGY
